“Long Time” – Blondie [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

I’ve been running circles ’round a night that never ends
I’ve been chasing heartache, in a city and a friend
I’ve been with you so long, even seen you lose it, but, who cares?
Racing down the bowery, on a crowded afternoon
Draping from the davenport in your insecure typhoon
Can you even want me, or this just a way to keep you safe?

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours
Are you, happy?

Does it take you a long time?
Does it make you upset?
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend?
I can give you a heartbeat, i can give you a friend
I can make you think, everybody wants to be your friend

Drinking with your cell phone with a smile on your face
Happy in success, but still a thousand miles away
Is this what you wanted, is this everything you had in store?

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours
Are you, happy?

Does it take you a long time
Does it make you upset
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend
I can give you a heartbeat, i can give you a friend
I can make you think, everybody wants to be your friend

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours
Are you, happy?

I’ve been running circles round a night that never ends
I’ve been chasing heartache, in a city and a friend
I’ve been with you so long, even seen you lose it, but, who cares?

Does it take you a long time
Does it make you upset
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend
I can give you a heartbeat, I can give you a friend
I can make you think, everybody wants to be your friend

Take me, then lose me, then tell them Im yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I’m yours

Blondie have shared a music video for “Long Time,” the second single from their upcoming album, Pollinator. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

“Long Time” is right in Blondie’s wheelhouse, blending pop, rock, disco, and new wave. The music gels together during some emotional moments of building-up and then releasing tension.

The video shows frontwoman Debbie Harry driving a cab (remember those?) and the band playing their instruments in various areas of New York City. If you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll see drummer Clem Burke paying homage to one of the city’s most legendary venues by rocking a CBGB’s shirt.

Blondie will be heading out on a North American co-headlining tour with Garbage beginning in early July.

Last month, the band shared a music video for “Fun” — another song we like. For more, check out the Blondie Zumic artist page.

Pollinator is scheduled to be released on May 5, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.
